    It's difficult to make out any details from the photos. The angles don't reveal much about the leaf shape or that of the petioles. Not much details such as stipules or hairs on the back of the leaves. It doesn't have a South African "feel" to it. What is the shape of the cross-section of the petioles? They look concave from the photos. If the shape is more oval than flat I'd go with D. capillaris. If more flat than oval and hairy on the undersides maybe D. spatulata or South African.

    Flowers and seed will give you a more positive ID. At least you can rule out what it isn't.

    Thanks everyone! I have plenty of time to solve this riddle and I do enjoy a challenge. I wish it was Ivans Paddle, but I am skeptical.

    @cpbobby: these are in fact plants I got from you in a trade and there was to be a collins in there. When I got the package tho you had thought it was the second biggest plant that was collins. That plant got frosted in the mail. These little guys were almost giving me the impression of stow aways. They were teensy, maybe 1/4" tall and wide. You said you had sent back extra plants that I had sent you, which could only have been adelae or fraser isl. spat. I don't recall all of the details, but I remember you sent a little regia, nidiformis, and the one that died which was probably not collins (it was a very tightly rosetted plant that best I could tell reminded me of slackii or maybe admirabilis shaped) and a few others which would be tough to confuse. (bladderworts etc.) So yeah, as far as the trade was concerned, it must be either collins or a mystery stow-away. Either way I am glad to have it! Thanks again.

    Yeah it was a bummer. It looked like a piece of lettuce fresh out of the freezer. Kinda turned to green goo. It was pretty big to be Diel's. It was definitly the size of a quarter or bigger. Looked like it was a good looking plant at one point tho.
